The event was held in the center of Hollywood, at the Supperclub Los Angeles. The Manifest Your Destiny Foundation is a non-profit organization that reaches out to youths to provide a path towards “empowerment and education excellence through mentoring, academic enrichment, programming, and college access skills.” Many know Harper from his CSI: NY television show, but on that night it was all about giving back to the less fortunate.
It is always great to party with a purpose, and with DJ B-Hen providing the music, and a mini concert by R&B singer RaVaughn, the party never stopped. Artists, actors, musicians, and anyone with a heart to give, pilled on the gifts in front of the stage, which benefited the U.S. Marine Corps Toys For Tots, the Los Angeles Chapter of After School All-Stars, and the Salvation Army Westwood Transitional Village.
With young men from the Marine Corps standing guard, party goers were able to let loose, while spotting some of their favorite celebrities including, Boris Kodjoe, Michael B. Jordan, David Oyelowo, and Robert Christopher Riley at the event. As DJ B-Hen played a journey of songs that spanned the globe, the night ended with the huge collection of toys, which made the night purposeful.
The Manifest Your Destiny Foundation sponsors year round programing with a mix of community, fun, and empowerment. To volunteer as a mentor, visit HERE, and stay tuned for next year’s drive.
